Screw Sun, cross-platform will never work
By martin on Feb 13, 2007
This exhibit are emails from the Visual J++ product manager Prashant Sridharan,
which unfortunately didn't surprise me:
"Screw Sun, cross-platform will never work. Let's move on and steal the Java language."
I'd like to point out two things to Mr Sridharan:
- I guess you were wrong, cross-platform does work, and
- I would not like to be in your shoes now
I didn't buy Microsoft stuff before, and after seeing this, they'll be making snow men in hell before I do!
Note: they seem to have added user and password requirement on since I wrote the blog entry, but it exists in Google's cache.
